Now in its eighth year, the Women of Influence award recognizes women who have demonstrated leadership that inspires those in their own companies and beyond, from lenders and service providers to realtors and housing non-profits.
Gegaj, a former Sales leader at UWM, was promoted to Vice President of Client Service in November 2015. She leads more than 40 team members, designing, orchestrating, and improving client experiences by evaluating every touch point of UWM's client interaction.
Gegaj spearheaded various initiatives that earned UWM the Stevie Award for Client Service Department of the Year in 2016, 2017, and 2018. Year to date, UWM has generated an external Net Promoter Score of 87%, which ranks among the highest scores in the nation.
Gegaj has successfully scaled several client service and empowerment strategies across the company.

Gegaj also built a team of call coaches and scorers who are dedicated to creating an environment of accountability and a client-first mentality.
Earlier this year, Gegaj launched the company's "Broker Brilliant Idea" platform, which allows UWM clients to submit ideas on technology, sales, marketing – any idea that will help them grow their business and help UWM become better as a company.
